Michelin unveils new biodegradable concept tyre

Michelin unveils new biodegradable concept tyre

If Michelin gets it right, then future cars would be equipped with 3D printed smart tyres that will be made from biodegradable materials. 

Michelin says that this new tyre has been inspired from nature. In fact, the interesting bit here is that the Vision Concept tyre also acts as a wheel. The use of 3D printing allows the tyre to be crafted in a way that is less wasteful but is also customisable for varied uses. The tread on this tyre can even be topped up, or recharged when it wears down or if the driver is headed for different road conditions. 

The tyre is equipped with a host of sensors that will allow real time monitoring. With the help of a smartphone application, the driver will know the condition of the app and could also use it to change the tread for a particular use.

Michelin hasn’t said if the Vision tyre will see a production line ever, but it did confirm that the product is within their reach.
